When a transgendered man tried to use the ladies' dressing room in a Texas Macy's last week, employee Natalie Johnson stopped him and said, "You're a man".
And although Macy's has a store policy that lets transgendered people choose which dressing room they want to go in, Natalie wasn't going to go along with the policy. She told her store manager that she was a devout Christian, and her religion prevents her from recognizing transgendered people. Quite naturally, she was fired.
Look, from the business point of view, if I need a position filled, and you need a job, and I'm going to pay you for the work you do, then that's it. I don't want to hear about why you can't work today, nor do I want to hear about babysitting issues or anything concerning your religion.
When working for a large retailer like Macy's, how could you even feel worthy enough to impose sanctions on customers? Doesn't Natalie know that there are people roaming the earth looking for a reason to sue a company like Macy's? So what she didn't want to see a man dressed as a lady change in the ladies' dressing room. She should have informed her manager of the situation before acting all "holy" on the person. Even if she didn't want to let him into the dressing room for fear that he could rape all the women in there, and he actually did rape all the women in there, it wouldn't have been on Natalie, it would've been on her manager.
What grinds my gears is the way she used Christianity to justify her behavior. Are you serious? "My religion prevents me from recognizing transgendered people"? What happened to Christianity being about love? How is anyone supposed to take White Jesus seriously when all people do is use Him to promote hate.
